Still awaiting certification two years on from my last post on this matter.

DC-9 copy!!!

Here we are in 2013 and this plane will not get it's Chinese certification until the end of 2014 some 11 years after it's first flight. FAA and European certification will not be for another 2 years after that, which will not be too much of a problem as the 200+ orders are 95% for Chinese airlines (surprise surprise). As I have said elsewhere there is a difference between building an aeroplane and getting it into service.

ARJ21 Xiangfeng is proud of China, we can do better.

Looks like the MD90/DC-9 to me from the specs and speeds! Then again, which technology is really indigenous to China- even Chinese cars are Japanese and Korean rip offs.

Pieter Waters, 08.02.2011

This airplane was built using the jigs and tooling provided by McDonnell-Douglas for the licensed construction of the MD-90 in China. It has the same fuselage cross-section, nose and tail. COMAC claims that this is the first jet designed by the Chinese with completely independent IP rights. This is, of course, hogwash.

It's a further development of the Boeing 717
